SUSTAINABILITY WEEK: MARKET RESPONSE

Showing my process as part Griffith University Gold Coast Sustainability Week fair was a great opportunity to gauge a local audience respond to the process and possible products.

People that were intrigued enough to venture over were generally people with invested interests in environmentally friendly products and systems. None the less it was good hear that they believed in the system and would get behind a future product. Even though the tiles were set out with the process information their initial responses were very surprised and impressed that this smooth and rigid material came from plastic packaging and excited for the product to follow.

With one 3D design student seeing the display and assuming the tiles were made from resin and paint I am confident that the waste plastics transformation has already exemplified how such a process has adding value and an elevated material perception.
